    Walking Worthy
    Ephesians 1:1-2
    In this introductory sermon to the series, we learn about the author, the audience, and the message of Ephesians.  We look at two key words we see in the introduction: grace and peace.  We discover these are important themes that run throughout the letter.  Since God has established peace between us and Himself and has shown grace to us in Christ, we should be quick to work for peace with others and extend grace to others who don’t deserve it.  We learn how these key concepts fit within the overall context of the letter to the Ephesians, and we learn what difference this makes for us today.
